Dreams and life goals can sometimes be seen as events that occur one-day in the distant future, something that you want to achieve but put off as it’s not the right time. Someday by Filipino-Australian artist Jennifer Trijo aims to break this line of thinking with motivational and inspirational original music, and discussions of positive psychology, philosophy, and neuroscience.
With an intriguing combination of a cabaret performance and a motivational TED talk, Jennifer pulls off the shows aim with passion. Showcasing ways to achieve a positive mindset and gain motivation for your goals in between each original song’s performance.
Jennifer commands a powerful stage presence while seeming very real and down to earth. She dazzles the audience with her beautifully strong voice, displaying an incredible range over the hour-long show, as well as playing a few instruments.

This unique uplifting pop music will have you bopping your head along and wishing you could dance. While it also encourages mindfully looking inwards at yourself and taking steps to achieve your dreams and stop procrastinating.
